Link please.
Well it's true isn't it? There's a piece of the memory subsystem disabled so you can't use above 3584mb without getting a massive reduction in memory bandwidth, It has to switch between both sections and can't input and output from both at once, it can only do two operations at once AFAIK. It's not the same 4GB as the 980 has that's for sure, they just want to make sure people know that. SLI and multi monitor users were not happy to find that out the hard way.

That's not the point. Every other reputable site lists the physical memory (or not at all). Further, before I hit refresh after adding him to the ignore list, he even thought that OCN was the review site. rolleyes.gif

I swear, first claiming nVidia actively GIMPs cards, then moves the goal posts, then compares an overclocked card to a stock one, then this garbage with one non-released game and confusing a link to a site to a site that actually did the review (OCN didn't do the review or the benchmark, he just linked to OCN and not the actual review site). Sheeze.

What's even funnier is that if you read that OCN thread, he totally missed how AMD cards are doing HORRIBLE in Project Cars, and yet he tries to use that game, which isn't out, as a basis to prove his point about "the evil nVidia". Oh well, let's see how well he likes that game on his R9 270X. rolleyes.gif



Not only did that nVidia 780 and 960 HAMMER the AMD R9 270X, but the "nVidia gimped the older cards" GTX 780 beat the newer GTX 960 Overclocked! Yeah, the old 680 (which wasn't overclocked), didn't fair so well against the 780 or 960 overclocked, but odds are, if you threw a 15% OC on that 680 (which is EASY), it would beat the 960 STOCK handedly.

Oh well, life moves on.

Most of OCN is amd because amd is overclockable so your rarely going to see an unbias view because amd reviews seem to be overclock and cost vs nvidia power and reliability not that amds arent but high heat and power use in the wrong users hands can be bad as can nvidia with someone who dosent know you dont get big boosts on nvidia like amd

We can argue ad infinium whether the 290 or the 290x but the 380x is coming with allegedly close performance to the R9 290. According to Kitguru, you are looking at a 4GB config with a 256 bit wide bus, a TDP of 200-220w, and all of the 2048 SPs enabled. All for $250, I can see how this card can be a replacement for the R9 290. Given that the 380 is already 10% faster than the GTX 960, the 380x would have probably been faster than even the GTX 960 Ti that never was.

You really wanna play on SLI? You really want latency etc.?

Sell your GTX 760 for 132$ and get R9 390.

Stop it man. You cherry pick benchmarks... whole point is that GTX 960 beats GTX 780 on ultra settings at 1080P.

Get rid of that 760 while you can get decent money for it. No way I would go SLI with a card like that over getting a single, faster card.
